The Genetic Support Council WA Inc provides information and support to individuals and families living with a genetic condition.
- Information on the services provided by genetic support groups. In Australasia there are hundreds of such groups, each focussing on a specific genetic condition. We can help put you in contact with these groups or provide support and guidance to help you establish a new support group
- A Resource Officer who can assist with enquiries and facilitate ongoing support for individuals, families, health professionals and other interested groups
- We have a resource centre offering up to date information on topics including: education, parenting, respite care, health services and other community support
- Information seminars
- Regular newsletters
Knowing where to access information, services or support can play a vital role in optimising day-to-day quality of life. The Resource Guide for Families outlines services that may be of assistance and how you may access them. This guide has been developed to help families who have had difficulty locating services and resources when the need arises.

The Council works to provide information and support to families where there are no specific support group i.e. rare genetic conditions.
